So I’m thinking of upgrading mine to get out of this dry spell.
However, I have one worry about getting better photos: If I dress up really nicely, get my hair done, and get photographed in flattering lighting, won’t I look different in my photos than I will on a first date?
So more and more people are turning to specialised dating photography agencies to ensure their pictures will give them the best possible chance of scoring a date. Well, according to Saskia Nelson, founder of the UK’s first online dating profile photography agency Hey Saturday, a lot of people are: “Our client numbers are doubling year on year approximately since we launched,” she told Upon Saskia’s recommendation, we met on the Southbank in London. The prospect of having a photoshoot in front of crowds of weekend tourists was terrifying, but luckily, Saskia suggested we start the shoot somewhere quieter.
Who’s so desperate they’re willing to pay to have a professional photographer take pictures of them for their Tinder profile?
Want to make a good first impression in the world of online dating? Way back when the Greatest Generation were courting, a good first impression meant attaining a base level of hygiene and human decency.
Today, it often requires a stellar online dating profile — something that more people are putting in the hands of paid professionals. Millions of online daters, preening on services like OKCupid, are looking to make real connections.

Also, while professional photos are great, stiff headshots aren't.
The stakes can be even higher on services like Tinder, which lets people choose each other based on their Facebook photos, and Glimpse, the Instagram-based dating app released for i OS on Tuesday, put a premium on how you present yourself.
So, yeah, that awkward photo from college graduation probably isn't going to cut it.
